Have you ever served on a nonprofit board? Well, here’s your chance! MAND is seeking candidates for next year’s board of directors and some other leadership positions. You can nominate yourself or someone else. Serving on a board helps you develop valuable leadership skills that can be transferred to other organizations: budgeting, communications, financial acumen, strategic thinking and working with a team.
Current members of the board (except those in positions who also have an elect position working with them) are encouraged to reapply. The positions are 2-year terms except for the elect positions; an asterisk indicates that the position is a member of the board of directors. If you have questions about the overall process, reach out to Lisa Dierks, Nominating Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mary Cherne, Nominations Chair-elect, at email@example.com
